Google As Napoleon

By - August 12, 2006

    Maybe it is a bit far sought, but the situations certainly have some similarities. I agree with mr.Saffo that a merger is not the solution.

    Napoleon became a legend because Clausewitz distilled his strategies into book form. Looks like you will have to do a new book on those Google guys.

    I did an article comparing most businesses to the cast of “Weird Science” but I haven’t gotten any phone calls from The Economist about that. Go figure.
